Omega has been very busy the past couple of years developing a wide range of projects. After completely renovating their museum in Bienne, they have now launched a complete online portal for the museum. For those who haven’t been able to visit the museum in person (myself included) this new website is a welcome addition to the wealth of Omega-related information to be found online.
We love a good history lesson (especially concerning early Seamaster divers), and the new Omega Museum website does not disappoint. It’s well designed and complimented by a host of excellent photos, timelines and articles relating to different Omega watches and brand partnerships. Omega is one of our favorite luxury brands and this site is an excellent addition to their online presence and a good supplement to the free iPad version of the Omega Lifetime magazine. It’s hard to think of another long-standing brand that takes better care of its fans and actively invests in their education. Even if you have only a casual interest in the Omega brand or their watches, their museum site offers an insider’s perspective and some interesting stories about their history. The Omega Museum website should do well in tiding us over until we can get a flight to Switzerland to witness the physical museum first hand.
